Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good speed


Cons:


  • Has medium low health


Performance

This plane is similar to the P-12 except now, the other planes have gotten more technology and are better. It still holds some great speed which paired with it's better than average maneuverability, can give it an edge in maneuver based engagements. It's guns and health can let it down though in head ons. So avoid those. If you go after enemies with turn based engagements you will win.


Early Research

  • Getting engines can help push your edge of speed
